Review

'This fine collection of essays makes an important contribution to the literature on 18th-century architectural space as it was constructed and experienced across Europe... the essays uniformly move beyond questions of individual architects and period styles to consider issues of patronage and politics, class and gender.' Laura Auricchio, Parsons New School for Design, author of Adelaide Labille-Guiard: Artist in the Age of Revolution 'Architectural Space in Eighteenth-Century Europe invites readers to explore a glorious collection of environments, making a worthwhile contribution to our understandings of art and culture in the 1700s. Its wide-ranging essays should find a place on the ever-expanding bookshelf devoted to the physical spaces and social codes of eighteenth-century life.' Caa-Reviews 'The book contributes vitally to our understanding of eighteenth-century interiors, and its strength is that it conceptualizes the interior not just as pure space, but as space engaging and overlapping with other conceptions of interiority that derive from political, social, and psychic identities. It also displays how creative the study of interiors has become and the richness of the material available in that century.' Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians 'Architectural space in eighteenth-century Europe: Constructing identities and interiors is a major contribution to this flourishing project. It gathers a set of carefully researched case studies that represent a wide range of topics and perspectives... one of the strengths of the collection is the way it challenges the simplistic, anachronistic opposition often implied by the terms 'public' and 'private'... All of the essays are carefully researched, focused, interesting contributions to the cultural history of architecture and interiors.' Journal of Art Historiography
